This is my first time entering a gb competition. I chose this kit because I like building 1:72 aircraft and i saw this kit for £8 on Amazon.

Yeah. Photos. And, why IL-2 always called "Stormovik"? Storm - it's "thunder", and IL-2 not a thunder plane, it's assault plane, that is "shturm", so IL-2 Shturmovik.

I thought the box art was very nice with the aircraft name in cyrillic and latin alphabet







The kit quite nice but had a lot of flash on almost every part. Instructions were very basic with no decal or painting instructions. Decals seem very thick and so does the clear plastic.







Cockpit went together very nice with only slight fitting issues. I am a brush painter because I am a teen living with my parents and dont want me having a spray booth. The paint stuck very well on the plastic.






not much to say here but the landing gears were painted and put in place.






Here was the first issue i had. The cockpit would not fit in place. I sanded, and sanded, and sanded. It finally fitted, but by taking the grain of some of my sandpaper.



Thats me all up to date with my model progress so far.

Looks like some work is needed to get this kit together, but your making great strides into it. Looking forward to the next update.

I have been really busy with school and havent had time to post these up so here is the past months work!


I assembled the fuselage and put it onto the cockpit. It fitted horribly and it pushed the instrument panel forward. The fuselage had massive gapes that my homemade filler fixed.


The filler worker really well. I used a few coats of it. I later added red paint to it so i could see what was model and what was filler.


I added the wings and the horizontal stabilizer and filled the gapes.


Here I tried to make panel lines by softening the plastic with Humbrol Liquid Cement, it didnt work and I filled it using my red homemade filler. I painted the model Revell 361 enamel. I have not used enamel for years when i first got into modeling and didnt have the right supplies. I have heared it is better since it has a slow dry time so i am cracking it out for this GB.


This is the stage I am at now. I have no idea what I am going to paint it. On the box art it it green and brown. In other models and diagrams i have seen this colour of green and a black green. Also a combination of them all. I dont know what will be best but for just now it is still plain green.

So far I think you're doing terrific work on this build. Remember to keep your paints thin and use some artistic interpretation.

Find a good reference picture and have fun. You have a blank slate to work with, enjoy it. [smile]

I know this is late but here is my final steps!



This was the colour scheme I had choses. Thankfully the model came with the decals to complete this project.



I painted the camo paint scheme and then took my pencil and drew panel lines where they should be.



I painted the underside in Humbrol 64 enamel then drew the panel lines on in pencil. Then I went over in a much more thin coat.

After this I applied the decals but I have lost the pictures.




After I applied the decals I applied the small parts the could be broken off.
